Hello and welcome to the second post in our ‘winter driving’ series.
We’ve assembled this fine collection of top tips to help you keep your car moving in wintry conditions.
In recent years, we haven’t had a lot of what you’d call a ‘traditional winter’. Most of the time, it’s been cold and wet, with occasional frosts. But whichever winter decides to show its face, you’re going to need to get your prep right before you take the car out. If you don’t, you could find yourself stuck, stranded or worse.
So, strap yourself in (rule number one – always strap yourself in!), and get ready for some winter driving top tips.
Welcome to Blue Light Aware!
We’re used to rain, right? Living in the UK, it sometimes feels like the downpour will never end and we need to start building that Ark.
Well, we’re now in the wettest period of the year (October to January), so it’s time to talk about how to drive when there are floods.
The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency and Highways England are pleased to announce the launch of Ridefree.
The news that the government has eased lockdown restrictions means changes are coming on our journey back to normality. Soon you’ll be able to get your hair cut and enjoy socialising with your friends. And some of you will be able to drive into work every day. Oh, that last one doesn’t sound quite so good does it? Still, as my old dad used to say, work comes to us all and we just have to get on with it.
I’ve got a bit of a shocking statistic for you. Did you know that around two thirds of road deaths happen on country roads? That’s more than urban roads and motorways combined. What’s going on here?
